CANADA'S CHANGING ENERGY PATTERN 

PART I - The Supply and Distribution of Individual Commodities in 1952 



This is the first of three articles on the supply 
and distribution of energy in Canada, based on a new 
method that has been developed for the presentation 
of the statistics in this field. The year 1952 was 
chosen beCause it is the last year for which a 
complete study is available. All data in this article 
are given in terms of weight, volume or kilowatt 
hours. The second article will present many of the 
1952 data in terms of a common unit of measurement, 
the British thermal unit. On this basis, it is possible 
to assess the relative importance of the different 
commodities which make up Canada's energy pattern. 
The final article will take several of the leading 
concepts covered by the first two articles, and will 
show the changes over time, from 1926 where 
possible, up to the latest date for which figures can 
be computed. Statistics presented in the second and 
third articles will fit into the framework of the main 
table presented here for the year 1952. 

The table on pages II and III shows the supply 
and distribution of energy in Canada in 1952, and a 
brief description of it is given in the following para- 
graphs. Full details on the way in which the table 
was built up, together with a detailed explanation of 
the concepts used, are contained in Reference PaDer 
Number 69 "Energy Sources in Canada; Comrnodit, 
Accounts for 1948 and 1952". Available data for 
earlier years are given in Reference Paper Number 
74, "Energy Sources in Canada; Commodity State- 
ments for 1926, 1929, 1933 and 1939" 

The Method of Approach 

For the purpose of this study, the fuels used in 
Canada were broken into commodity groups as finely 
as the available data permitted. Each commodity 
group ' has a column in the consolidated table, as 
does electricity. For 1952, it was not possible to 
break out the electricity completely between that 
generated by water and that generated by thermal 
plants, although such a breakdown would be prefer- 
able. Reference Paper Number 69 gives (page 15) 
sufficient information for an estimate to be made 
with reasonable accuracy for most economic purposes. 

For each commodity group, a series of data are 
given, which demonstrate where the available supply 
came from, and how it was used. The available 
supply in Canada is taken to be the amount produced 
within the country plus the excess of imports over 
exports (net imports) plus the net amount withdrawn 
from stocks during the year. In cases where stocks 
were built up during the year, the change in stocks 
is given as a negative quantity. 



The use of net imports is satisfactory for an 
aggregative approach, but more detail is needed, of 
course, to give the full picture of the impact of inter- 
national trade on the Canadian energy pattern. For 
1952., when exports of fuel were comparatively un- 
important, the use of net imports does not obscure a 
broad view of the international aspect. However, it 
could be less satisfactory for a year in which there 
were heavy imports and exports of the same com- 
modity. In 1956, for instance, a statement of net 
imports of crude petroleum anight be somewhat mis- 
leading, because in that year there were heavy 
exports from western Canada, simultaneously with 
heavy imports to eastern Canada. A similar table for 
1956 might, therefore, need to be presented some- 
what differently. 

Having worked out the available supply, the next 
step was to account for its use. The total accounted 
for is given as line 6 of the table. Line 5, use un- 
accounted for, is a balancing item obtained by sub- 
tracting the use accounted for from the available 
supply. 

To some extent, waste can be accounted for. 
Measured waste is stated on line 7, and the deduction 
of it from use accounted for leaves use accounted for 
net of-waste, on line 8. 

Because one purpose of this study was to deter- 
mine the net use of energy, it was necessary to 
break out separately the amounts of fuel and elec- 
tricity used in the process of producing other units 
of fuel and electricity. Lines 9 to 17 give information 
about these. Deduction of hSe amounts used within 
the energy-producing sector gives, at line 18, the 
amount used outside the energy-producing sector, as 
far as this was measured. The next step, is to deduct 
the amountof fuel commodities used as raw materials. 
Finally, line 20 shows the total amount of fuel or 
electricity used to supply energy outside the energy- 
producing sector. Lines 21 to 27 break this total 
down between the more important categories of end 
use. 

The statistical gap — One advantage of the con- 
sol idated table is that it provides a check on the 
cover of the statistical system, and to some extent 
on its quality. The total for supply available in 
Canada should theoretically be the same as that for 
use accounted for, including waste. Under the condi- 
tions of actual measurement, there is a difference, 
usually in the form of a shortfall of measured dis- 
tribution below the apparent supply. For all the 
commodities covered, this supply figure can be

assumed to be reasonably reliable. Information on the 
change in inventories is sometimes incomplete, but 
this item is probably, never more than a small part 
of the total supply. The statistical gap is therefore 
best measured as the percentage by which the 
measured portion of consumption falls short of the 
apparent available supply. The table below shows 
this statistical gap, ranking the commodities accord- 
ing to the size of the gap, irrespective of sign.

The first point which springs to mind is that the 
degree of cover was quite high in 1952, 93.4 per cent 
-or more of the supply being accounted for on the 
distribution side for ten of the commoduty groups, 
including all the major ones. Most of the fuelwood 
unaccounted for was used by households for heating 
or cooking. Studies have shown that there was a 
considerable increase in cover for most fuels between 
1939 and 1948. This was due to wartime controls and 
the consequent need for additional information. 

Tfie Supply and Distribution of Individual 
Commodities 

The consolidated table shows a varying pattern 
of supply and distribution for the different sources 
of energy. An outline of the main features for each 
commodity group is given below. 

Coal (excluding briquettes) — It is clear from the 
table that Canada was dependent on imports for the 
greater part of her coal supply in 1952. In fact, she 
produced only 42.5 per cent of her domestic require- 
ments. Production .was concentrated in Nova Scotia 
and New Brunswick in the east, and in Saskatchewan, 
Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon in the west. 
Of the 6,648,088 tons mined in the Maritimes 



6,120,657 were from underground mines, and 527,431 
tons from open pits, which are much easier to operate. 
Of the 10,930,914 tons mined in the West, 5,889,286 
tons were from underground mines, and 5,041,628 
tons from open pits. Central Canada produced no 
coal, and because of the long distances between it 
and the Canadian mines, it met its requirements 
from more readily accessible sources in the United 
States. The waste accounted for in the coal industry 
consisted of material dumped at the mines as being 
sub-standard. Most of this is a carbonaceous type of 
shale mixed with the coal hauled out of pits. Of the 
use accounted for, 19.7 per cent occurred within the 
energy-producing sector. Most of this was in coke 
and gas plants, mainly for *he production of coke. 
Canada's iron and steel industry consumes large 
quantities of coke in its blast furnaces and to some 
extent in its steel furnaces. These furnaces together 
consumed the equivalent of about 7 tons of coal for 
every 10 tons of iron ore. About 1.3 million tons of 
coal were used by central electric stations. 

Use of coal otherwise than for producing fuel or 
electricity was fairly evenly divided between three 
groups: household and commercial users which 
require coal mainly for space heating, manufacturers 
and mines which use it both for space heating and 
for power, and the transportation industry which uses 
it mainly for power. 

Coal briquettes afford a convenient means of 
using the dust and small pieces which always occur 
when coal is mined. They do not form a major part 
of the energy picture. In 1952, they were used mainly 
by the railroads. 

Crude petroleum — Crude petroleum was another 
major energy source for which Canada was heavily 
dependent on imports in 1952, when domestic produc- 
tion made up 44.0 per cent of the available supply. 
This was a considerable increase over the period 
before the Alberta oilfields were major producers. 
In 1939, for instance, Canadian sources supplied 
17.0 per cent of domestic crude oil requirements; in 
1948, the comparable figure was 13.7 per cent. 

In 1952, the refineries of the Maritimes and of 
Quebec imported all their requirements of crude oil, 
because of their distance from the oilfields of the 
Canadian west. Ontario refineries met 59.5 per cent 
of their requirements from Canadian sources, from 
which a pipeline had been laid eastwards. The 
refineries of the Prairies and the Northwest Terre- 
tories obtained almost all their crude oil from 
domestic wells. In British Columbia, 93.6 per cent of 
refinery requirements were imported by sea. Exports 
in 1952 were small, being about 1 per cent of avail- 
able domestic supply. Almost all the crude petroleum 
used in Canada werjt into the refineries. A very small 
amount was used in pipeline operations. 



Natural gas - Canada met her own requirements 
of natural gas in 1952, and had net exports of this 
commodity. The energy-producing sector itself used 
up 15.8 per cent of the natural gas produced. A 
slightly larger amount, 16.7 per cent, was wasted at 
the gas fields. Of the use outside the energy-produc- 
ing sector, households were the major consumer, 
followed by manufacturing and mining establish- 
ments, and by commercial establishments. A certain 
amount of natural gas was used as a raw material, 
but the amount cannot be disclosed, because of the 
need to keep the activities of individual firms con- 
fidential. 

Coke (except petroleum and pitch coke)— Ca- 
nadian plants turned out 94-5 per cent of the Ca- 
nadian supply of coke in 1952. Of this supply, 7.7 
per cent was used by coke and gas plants. Blast 
furnaces consumed 2,493,903 tons, or well over half 
the available supply. When other uses as raw ma- 
terials are taken into account, 2,790,415 tons, or 
65.0 per cent of the available supply, were used as 
raw materials. Net use as energy, mainly by manu- 
facturers and mines, accounted for less than a quarter 
of the available supply. 

Gasoline and Naphtha — Naphtha was included 
with gasoline because they cannot be separated in 
certain trade statistics, but the data relate almost 
entirely to gasoline. Canadian refineries provided 
89.8 per cent of the available supply of this important 
fuel. Owing to some discrepancy in the statistical 
system, use accounted for was greater than the 
apparent available supply. Almost all of this com- 
modity was used outside the energy-producing sector. 
Most of it was for transportation, mainly for road 
transport. 

Other petroleum fuels — A smaller proportion, 
76.3 per cent, of the supply of other petroleum fuels 
was made up from domestic sources. Use within the 
energy-producing sector took up 7.6 per cent of avail- 
able supply, petroleum refineries being the heaviest 
users here. Of the amount used as fuel outside the 
energy-producing sector, household and commercial 
users consumed most. Their use was primarily for 
space heating, and accounted for about two fifths of 
total consumption. The transportation sector, using 
petroleum fuels as a source of power, was responsible 
for almost a quarter of all use. Manufacturers and 



mines, which used the oil partly for heating and 
partly for power, accounted for just over one fifth of 
the amount consumed. 

Fuel wood — Fuelwood was supplied entirely from 
domestic sources. Data on its use are scanty, but it 
is known that about 6 per cent went as raw materials. 
It is probable that most of the remainder was used 
for domestic heating and cooking, although it is 
known that quantities of wood waste are burnt by 
manufacturers. 

Electricity — Canada met her own requirements 
of electricity, and was a net exporter on a limited 
scale. Of the 66.1 billion kilowatt hours generated, 
at least 57.0 billion were generated by water power, 
and 2.4 billion by thermal plants. About 96.0 per 
cent of electricity was used outside the energy- 
producing sector, manufacturers using 60.6 per cent 
of the available supply. Most of this would be used 
for light and power, although substantial quantities 
of off-peak power were used for heating purposes by 
the pulp and paper industry, and large quantities 
were also used for industrial processes of which the 
use of electricity is an integral part, such as electro- 
plating and certain stages of aluminum production. 
Household and commercial users accounted for about 
19.2 per cent of the available supply. This use was 
probably mainly for lighting, cooking, and the opera- 
tion of appliances. When electricity is transmitted 
over power lines, some of it is used up in over- 
coming resistance. Such line losses have been in- 
cluded in use for transportation, which absorbed 
about 10.2 per cent of the supply. 

Other fuels— Petroleum coke was not a major 
source of energy. It was mainly used as a raw ma- 
terial, by manufacturing industry. The entire supply 
of manufactured gas was produced in Canada. Of 
this, 35.2 per cent was used by the coke and gas 
plants or the petroleum refineries which produced it. 
Manufacturers and mines were the other major users 
of manufactured gas, followed by households. Half 
the supply of liquefied petroleum gases was made 
up of Canadian production. Information about the 
disposal of this commodity is not complete, and 
81.5 per cent of its use was unaccounted for. The 
energy-producing sector itself used 18.0 per cent of 
the output, petroleum refineries being responsible 
for nearly all of this.

"'Prior to January, 1957, these totals include the net amount generated by the more important central electric stations, i.e. companies, municipalities, and 
individuals selling or distributing electric energy. From January, 1957 they include all generating agencies producing over ten million kilowatt hours per year. The total 
generated on the old basis for January 1957 was 7,457 million kilowatt hours. '"These columns include all generating utilities and generating industries respectively, 

producing over ten million kilowatt hours per year. '"Less imports. "'Total net generation less net exports. Total power available for disposal for January, 

1957 on the old basis was 7.170 million kilowatt hours. '"Mainly the amount used in electric boilers. Source: Monthly Report. Central Electric Station*.

irrespective of work done on them or of stocks from which they can be filled, but less progress receipts in industries working on long term contracts. Sales in these 
industries include progress receipts. Estimates are derived by inflating the monthly reported values to total for each industry on the basis of the estimated year-end

'Construction of dwelling units. 

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgage 
and Housing Corporation. All Metropolitan Areas and Urban Centres with a population of 5,000 or more are enumerated completely. Approximately 400 sample areas 
lying outside these municipalities were also chosen for complete enumeration; in June, 195S, the number of sample areas was increased to nearly 80Q.

"The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and as of 1956, stands at 901, minor revision still being required in the table, due to the non-receipt 
of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits 
but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant -and considerable change may develop before the 
completion of the operation.

(i) Data in this table refer to railways with annual operating revenues of $500,000 or over. Monthly averages for 1955 and 1956 differ from the sum of the monthly 
data due to revisions which cannot be allocated by months. "> As of January, 1955, the C.P., C.N. and Quebec North Shore and Labrador Railways use the 

"Uniform Classification of Accounts for Common Carriers by Railway". The Pacific Great Eastern Railway uses the new classification system as of January, 1956. 
Beginning in January, 1957, all railways follow the uniform classification of accounts, and the statistics previously shown in the "Other Railways" section in the upper 
hall of the table are combined, as of that date, with those railways already following the new system. <» Operating income equals operating revenues less operating 

expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent of equipment and joint facilities. Source: Railway Operating Statistics, D.B.S.

and are therefore not directly comparable with figures for preceding month-ends, which are based on "not exceeding market value". (''Beginning January 31, 1957, 

figures for certain chartered bank asset items are not strictly comparable with those for earlier dates owing to the reallocation of inner reserves consequent upon the 
securities valuation change referred to in footnote 7. ("Excluding Canadian day-to-day loans. '""Figures for June 30, 1954, and later, are not adjusted for 

items in transit and are not strictly comparable with those for earlier dates. The figure for June 30, 1954, after adjustment for items in transit, was 3,789. Includes loans to grain 
dealers and exporters, loans to finance the purchase of Canada Savings Bonds at time of issue and all other loans in Canada. ""Includes deposits with other banks in

Note. — This series gives total new settled-for ordinary insurance sales in Canada, exclusive of revivals, increases, dividend additions, reinsurance acquired and 
pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 31 companies operating in Canada representing 87 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. 

"'The Canada totals by months for 1955 and 1956 do not correspond to the sum of the provincial totals as revisions applied to the national total are not yet 
available for the provinces. The Canada totals are comparable for these two years. Provincial monthly totals for 1955, however, are not comparable with those for 
previous years due to changes by several companies in the manner of reporting new business. For 1956, the provincial figures are comparable with each other, but arc 
not strictly comparable with previous years; the same applies to the 1957 data. The annual figures for Canada and the provinces are consistent, although the 1956 data 
are still preliminary. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada, Life Insurance Agency Management Association, Hartford, Conn.

Note. — The definition of profits before taxes ia based mainly on the accounting definitions used by corporations. However, depletion charges are added back 
to net profits while Canadian dividends received are excluded from profits in order to avoid duplication. The term "profits" as used here means the total profits of all 
companies earning profits less the losses of all companies incurring losses. Estimates are based on profits as reported by a sample of all companies incorporated in Canada 
(excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives). 

'" Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Construction. W Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Tobacco, 

Rubber, Leather, Non-Metallic minerals, Petroleum and Coal and Miscellaneous Manufacturing Industries. (,) Includes Printing and Publishing and Allied Industries.

CANADA'S CHANGING ENERGY PATTERN 



PART 2 - The Pattern in 1952 



This is the second of three articles on the supply 
and distribution of energy in Canada. The first one, 
Part 1, The Supply and Distribution of Individual 
Commodities in 1952 appeared on pages I to V of the 
July, 1957 issue. The third one, which will appear 
in the October 1957 issue, will present historical 
series, which fit into the framework used for present- 
ing the 1952 data. 

ENERGY EQUIVALENTS 

When measuring fuel in units of weight or volume, 
and electricity in kilowatt-hours, as was done in the 
first article, it is possible to discuss only one com- 
modity at a time. To show the general energy pattern, 
and the relative part played by each commodity, it is 
necessary to use a common unit of measurement. 
The British thermal unit is used for the D.B.S. energy 
statistics project, and the consolidated table which 
appeared on pages II and III of the July 1957 issue 
has been fully converted to this basis elsewhere. 1 
The conversion factors used were as follows.

The method used for converting electricity is 
worth a special mention here. A straight energy- 
equivalent approach was used, measuring the elec- 
tricity in terms of the energy which it actually repre- 
sents, irrespective of the method used for generating 
it. When interpreting any general comparisons in 
terms of B.t.u., it should be borne in mind that, in 
terms of work actually done, electricity is far more 
important that it is in terms of potential energy, 
because of its greater efficiency in use. 



The distinction between energy sources used and 
energy effectively applied is important, and merits a 
brief explanation. When a steam engine is inoperation 
for instance, the energy source used consists of the 
coal which is stoked into the boiler. The energy 
effectively applied is the amount of force exerted by 
the driving shaft of the engine. The potential energy 
in the coal is not all effectively applied. Some heat, 
for instance goes up the chimney, some energy is 
used in overcoming friction within the engine, and 
some energy losses are inherent in the physical 
properties of steam. 

In Canada, running water provides a very im- 
portant supply of energy. The water-power which was 
used to generate electricity is covered by this mem- 
orandum (see Page I of the July issue). Water-power 
used directly, as for driving a machine by means of 
a turbine, is not covered because the relevant data 
are not available. However, this latter type of use is 
not quantitatively very important. 

The available statistics on distribution cover the 
input of energy sources only. They range over such 
items as coal burned in factories, crude oil used in 
petroleum refineries, gasoline used in motor vehicles, 
and electricity used for street lighting. They do not 
measure energy effectively applied. 1 

THE NET USE OF ENERGY 

The B.t.u. conversion can be used to estimate the 
net use of energy in Canada. For each individual 
commodity group, the imputed consumption outside 
the energy-producing sector can be estimated by 
deducting from the apparent available supply the 
amount used within the energy-producing sector; the 
balance includes the measured use outside the 



1. Reference Paper No. 69, Energy Sources In Canada; 
Commodity Accounts for 1948 and 1952. Pages 32 and 
33. 



1. An attempt to measure energy effectively applied has 
been made by the Department of Economic and Social 
Affairs, United Nations. They adjusted the energy 
equivalents of various fuels by their efficiency in use, 
for which rough estimates were obtained. Electricity 
was assumed to have an efficiency of 100 per cent in 
household and industrial use. The efficiency with 
which coal was used was assumed to vary from 4 per 
cent on railways, through 20 per cent in ships and 40 
per cent in households to 55 per cent in industry. The 
efficiency of use of gasoline on highways was estimated 
at 20 per cent. Other efficiencies were estimated for 
different fuels in different uses. Obviously, the relative 
importance of the individual fuels, in a table for effi- 
ciency in use based on this method, will differ from the 
relative importance on a straightforward energy-equi- 
valent basis. One striking difference is that the relative 
importance of electricity is much greater. No work has 
been done on these lines by D.B.S. on the Canadian 
data. A description of the method was, however, included 
in this article in order to emphasize what the figures 
given in terms of energy equivalent actually do and do 
not show.

2. There is some double-counting in this row, because some of the electricity used by industry was generated by 
the consumers, using fuel for this purpose. 

3. Use as raw material is included with consumption as fuel.

energy-producing sector, the use unaccounted for, 
and some statistical discrepancy. Natural gas can 
be taken as an example. The apparent supply in 
1952 was 99,664,526 thousand cubic feet, of which 
15,706,444 thousand were known to have been used 
for producing fuel or electricity. The imputed net 
consumption was therefore 83,956,082 thousand cubic 
feet. The equivalent energy value was 67,277 billion 
B.t.u. The imputed consumption of all groups shown 
in the Consolidated table in the July issue was as 
follows:

Coal stands out as the major commodity, so far 
as end-use is concerned, with the fuel oils second 
ond gasoline third. Goal and its products accounted 
for 43.8 per cent of end use, while petroleum and its 
products accounted for 36.7 per cent. The total 
imputed consumption of energy was 157.0 million 
B.t.u. per head of population. 

THE END USES OF FUEL COMMODITIES 

When the main table is converted into B.t.u., 
some lines can be added without double-counting, 
but others cannot. Net imports, which can be summed 
for all commodities, amounted to 1,310,097 B.t.u. 
in 1952. Production, however, cannot be added for 
all items. Some of the coal produced, for instance, 
is used for making electricity, and some of the elec- 
tricity produced is used in mining coal. Use outside 
the energy-producing sector can, however, be added, 
since these are all end-uses. 

The table below shows in terms of B.t.u. the use 
of fuel commodities and electricity outside the 
energy-producing sector in absolute and in percentage 
terms. The total for imputed consumption is from 
the table above, and is broken down between meas- 



ured use outside the energy-producing sector, and a 
statistical discrepancy which is mainly due to use 
unaccounted for, but is also affected by possible 
inaccuracies of measurement of the available supply. 
Use outside the energy-producing sector, and the 
breakdown of it, are from Table 6 of Reference Paper 
No. 69.

It will be noted that unrecorded consumption and 
statistical discrepancy made up 7.8 per cent of the 
imputed net consumption, mainly because of lack of 
information about the disposition of fuelwood. For 
fuels as a whole, use as raw materials accounted 
for only 4.1 per cent of the net consumption. It 
should be remembered that the large quantities used 
for conversion into other types of fuel are excluded 
from this table. Crude petroleum, for instance, is 
only a minor item so far as use outside the energy- 
producing sector is concerned. Transportation was 
the biggest end-use consumer, accounting for 33.9 
per cent of imputed net consumption. The household 
and commercial sector, with 27.2 per cent was just 
ahead of manufacturing and mining, with 25.4 per 
cent. 

Similar data on the use of each individual fuel 
commodity are shown in the table on Pages ii and iii. 

The extent to which fuelwood contributes to the 
total of unrecorded consumption and the statistical 
discrepancy is brought out in this table. Since most 
of the fuelwood unaccounted for probably went in 
household and commercial use, the proportion of use 
of all fuel commodities accounted for by households 
and commercial consumers should be interpreted with 



IV 



care. A percentage distribution of actual use would 
show fuelwood as providing probably over 15 per 
cent of the total, with other fuels proportionate! v 
reduced. A percentage distribution of actual total 
use outside the energy-producing sector would prob- 
ably show fuelwood as contributing about 5 per cent. 

It is clear that the household and commercial 
sector was more dependent on coal than on petroleum 
products, as was the manufacturing and mining 
sector. Transportation, however, met 58 per cent of 
its measured requirements of energy by petroleum 
fuels. Manufacturers and mines were more dependent 
on electricity than other sectors, satisfying nearly 
a quarter of their energy requirements in this form. 



NET ACCESSION OF ENERGY TO CANADA 



Although the items of production cannot be added 
together, nor can the items of apparent available 
supply, there is one concept of availability of energy 
by which a total for Canada can be arrived at. If all 
energy sources are measured at the first stage at 
which they enter the Canadian economy, then they 
can be added to give the gross accession. This 
would consist of production from the natural environ- 
ment, that is minerals produced at the mine or well 
and electricity generated by water power, plus 
imports of all relevant items in the form in which 
they enter the country. Deduction of exports leaves 
the net accession of fuel and electricity to Canada. 
It is shown for 1952 in the tables below. (The data 
for electricity include some generated in thermal 
plants by manufacturers and mines for their own use, 
which could not be eliminated for technical reasons). 
A figure for net imports is given instead of showing 

Net Accession of Fuel and Electricity to Canada, 7952 



imports and exports separately. The first table gives 
the B.t.u. components, and the second expresses 
the items as percentages of the total. • 

When using this particular type of approach, some 
statistical authorities use an alternative method of 
conversion, under which hydro-electricity is convert- 
ed to a common unit on the basis of the energy 
potential of the coal or other fuel that would be 
required to produce it, at current levels of operating 
efficiency. This gives a bigger value to electricity 
and consequently makes it a higher proportion of net 
accession. 

The net accession is, of course, greater in total 
than the imputed net consumption. It represents the 
total input of energy sources to the country, whereas 
the imputed net consumption excludes use within the 
energy-producing sector and waste. For some individ- 
ual commodities, however, net consumption is greater 
than net accession, because some are largely, or 
almost wholly, converted into others before they 
come to their end use. 



Coal was the major item of basic supply and 
with its products provided 43.4 per cent. Crude 
petroleum, gasoline, petroleum coke and other petro- 
leum fuels provided 40.0 per cent. Electricity pro- 
vided 8.1 per cent, fuelwood 4.8 per cent, and natural 
gas and liquefied petroleum gases 4.2 per cent. 

Net imports provided 50.9 per cent of net ac- 
cession in 1952. Of this, 43.9 per cent of the total 
consisted of imports of raw materials, and 7.3 per 
cent consisted of imports of other fuels. Net exports 
of electricity, 0.3 per cent of the total, were deducted 
to give total net imports of 50.9 per cent.

SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ECONOMIC INDICATORS 



AUGUST, 1957 



EXPORTS AND IMPORTS AND CORPORATION PROFITS 

Seasonally adjusted exports of goods increased in June mainly due to an improvement in exports 
of wood products. Imports of goods showed a further drop. Corporation profits before taxes in the 
first quarter continued to decline from their peak in the second quarter of 1956.

28 Note: The coverage of this series has been expanded as of January, 1957 to include, in addition to Central Electric Stations industrial power installations that 

generate electricity for their own use. Except for utilities, comparable data for previous months are not available. 

'"Prior to January, 1957, these totals include the net amount generated by the more important central electric stations, i.e. companies, municipalities, and 
individuals selling or distributing electric energy. From January, 1957 they include all generating agencies producing over ten million kilowatt hours per year. The total 
generated on the old basis for January 1957 was 7,457 million kilowatt hours. '"These columns include all generating utilities and generating industries respectively, 

producing over ten million kilowatt hours per year. "'Less imports. ("Total net generation less net exports. Total power available for disposal for January. 

1957 on the old basis was 7,170 million kilowatt hour*. ("Mainly the amount used in electric boilers. Source: Monthly Report, Central Electric Stations,

'"In industries where long-term contracts involve the receipt of progress payments, all such payments are treated as sales. The series represents an estimated 
projection, on a monthly basis, of the latest available Census of Industry values. '"Total new orders received during the period, at estimated selling values. The 

series cover total New Orders, net of cancellations, regardless of whether the orders will be filled from stock or as a result of activity during the same month (and also 
be reported as shipments in the month received) or whether they will be added to existing backlogs. ("Estimated total unfilled orders on books at end of month, 

irrespective of work done on them or of stocks from which they can be filled, but less progress receipts in industries working on long term contracts. Sales in these 
industries include progress receipts. Estimates are derived by inflating the monthly reported values to total for each industry on the basis of the estimated year-end 
total values for each industry as obtained from annual surveys. '''Manufacturing inventory owned by manufacturers, whether held at plant or not, at end of period.

Note. — These data are the results of a nation-wide survey carried out each month by the Bureau of Statistics with the co-operation of the Central Mortgage 
and Housing Corporation. All Metropolitan Areas and Urban Centres with a population of 5,000 or more are enumerated completely. Approximately 400 sample areas 
lying outside these municipalities were also chosen for complete enumeration; in June, 1955, the number of sample areas was increased to nearly 800.

"'The coverage was extended to 607 municipalities in 1(148, and as of 1956, stands at 901, minor revision still being required in the table, due to the non-receipt 
of returns from a few small places. No account is taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting of permits 
but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the 
completion of the operation.

(i) Data in this table refer to railways with annual operating revenues of $500,000 or over. Monthly averages for 1955 and 1956 differ from the sum of the monthly 
% due to revisions which cannot be allocated by months. M As of January, 1955, the C.P., C.N. and Quebec North Shore and Labrador Railways use the 

aiform Classification of Accounts for Common Carriers by Railway". The Pacific Great Eastern Railway uses the new classification system as of January, 1956. 
fanning in January, 1957, all railways follow the uniform classification of accounts, and the statistics previously shown in the "Other Railways" section in the upper 
).' of the table are combined , as of that date, with those railways already following the new system. <•> Operating income equals operating revenues less operating 

■Hises adjusted for tax accruals and rent of equipment and joint facilities. Source: Railway Operating Statistics, D.B.S.

Note. — This series gives total new settled-for ordinary insurance sales in Canada, exclusive of revivals, increases, dividend additions, reinsurance acquired and 
pension bonds without insurance. Totals are estimates projected from the sales reported by 3 1 companies operating in Canada representing 87 per cent of new ordinary 
insurance sales. 

"The Canada totals by months for 1955 and 1956 do not correspond to the sum of the provincial totals as revisions applied to the national total are not yet 
available for the provinces. The Canada totals are comparable for these two years. Provincial monthly totals for 1955, however, are not comparable with those for 
previous years due to changes by several companies in the manner of reporting new business. For 1956, the provincial figures are comparable with each other, but are 
not strictly comparable with previous years; the same applies to the 1957 data. The annual figures for Canada and the provinces are consistent, although the 1956 data 
are still preliminary. Source: Monthly Survey of Life Insurance Sales in Canada, Life Insurance Agency Management Association, Hartford, Conn.

Note. — The definition of profits before taxes is based mainly on the accounting definitions used by corporations. However, depletion charges are added back 
to net profits while Canadian dividends received are excluded from profits in order to avoid duplication. The term "profits" as used here means the total profits of all 
companies earning profits less the losses of ail companies incurring losses. Estimates are based on profits as reported by a sample of all companies incorporated in Canada 
(excluding government-owned companies and incorporated co-operatives). 

<" Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Construction. <» Includes, in addition to the industries listed, Tobacco, 

Rubber, Leather, Non-Metallic minerals, Petroleum and Coal and Miscellaneous Manufacturing Industries. '"Includes Printing and Publishing and Allied Industries.

INTRODUCTORY REVIEW 



Preliminary estimates of Gross National Product 
in the second quarter show no change from the 
seasonally adjusted first quarter rate of $30.7 
billion. This stability in the value figures was ac- 
companied by a further advance in final product 
prices, which rose during the period by almost 1 
per cent. The levelling-off in output which was 
noted in the first quarter has thus been continued 
into the second quarter, and is in contrast to the 
strong upward trend which has characterized the 
figures since mid-1954. The recent levelling-off in 
output was not reflected in aggregative employment 
measures, which continued to move upward. 

At $30.7 billion, the Gross National Product in 
the first half of this year has averaged about 3 
per cent above the annual figure for the year 1956 
as a whole. This comparison includes an estimate 
of the value of crop production in Canada for the 
year 1957, which is substantially below the year 
1956. Most recent data suggest that grain output 



may drop by about $350 million this year, mainly 
due to extremely dry weather conditions in the 
Prairie Provinces. Such a decline would represent 
about 1 per cent of the total value of the Gross 
National Product. Non-farm Gross National Product, 
seasonally adjusted, has averaged about 4 per cent 
over last year's annual total in the first half of 1957. 

The relative stability in the value of total 
production between the first and second quarters 
of this year was accompanied by mixed and off- 
setting tendencies in important categories of income, 
expenditure, and output. Labour income rose further 
as employment and earnings continued to advance. 
Investment income was off slightly, reflecting a 
continuation of the downward trend in profits, and a 
rise in dividends paid abroad. Other categories of 
National Income showed small declines; farm net 
income from the sale of livestock products was 
lower, while unincorporated non-farm income was 
affected by a decline in retail sales.

Gross National Product ex 









'Seasonally adjusted at annual rates. 

On the expenditure side, offsetting tendencies 
were again present, with gains in non-residential 
construction and in government expenditures counter- 
balanced by declines in other demand categories. 
Personal expenditure on consumer goods and 
services was virtually the same as a drop in durable 
goods purchases was almost offset by gains in out- 
lays for non-durables and for services; it may be 
noted that the advances in the latter two categories 
in the second quarter were somewhat smaller than 



in recent quarters. Although housing starts have 
risen sharply since the Spring, housing outlays 
showed a further decline in the second quarter, re- 
flecting the fact that completions were lower. The 
strong upward movement in outlays for new machinery 
and equipment came to an end in the first quarter, 
and in the second quarter gave way to a minor 
decline. At the same time, imports of goods and 
services fell slightly, in response to a smaller inflow 
of iron and its products, marking the first break in 



a long period of successive quarter-to-quarter gains. 
Exports of goods and services, which were level 
throughout most of 1956, were adversely affected in 
the second quarter by a further decline in exports of 
agricultural products, notably grains. These wide- 
spread, though individually quite small, declines 
in the above-noted categories of final demand were 
accompanied by a fall-off in the rate of inventory 
accumulation, as both the trade groups and manu- 
facturers added less to their holdings of inventories. 
The net effect of these divergent movements was to 
leave total Gross National Expenditure approximately 
unchanged at the level of the first quarter of 1957. 

Real Output 

Related indicators suggest varied trends in output 
in the main industrial groups. Seasonal factors apart, 
major gains in output continued to occur in the 
primary industries, forestry, and mining, quarrying 
and oil wells; output in the construction industry 
also rose. Output in manufacturing was off 3 per cent, 
with the major part of that loss concentrated in 
durable goods industries, which were down 4 per 
cent in contrast to a 1 per cent decline in non- 
durables. Losses were for the most part small and 
fairly widely dispersed among the various manu- 
facturing industries. A sharp fall in output occurred 
in two industries, non-ferrous metals and transpor- 
tation equipment; in the first-named the sharpness 
of the drop is partly attributable to a prolonged work 
stoppage in a large aluminum plant; in transportation 
equipment, the decline in output is mainly accounted 
for by the lower level of production in the automotive 
industry. 

In addition to manufacturing, losses occurred in 
some other industries; output in transportation was 
lower, reflecting the drop in rail freight traffic. 
Likewise output in trade reflected the reduced 
volume of retail sales. 

In spite of declines in output in a number of 
industries in the second quarter, the level of pro- 
duction in almost all industrial groups in the first 
half of 1957 was above that of the corresponding 
period of 1956. The sharpest gains were in mining 
(10 per cent), electric power and gas utilities (8 per 
cent) and construction (5 per cent). The increase in 



manufacturing output (1 per cent) was the lowest of 
any major industry. 

Employment 

In spite of the levelling off in production, 
employment continued to rise in the second quarter, 
with the industrial composite index of employment 
showing a small gain of 0.6 per cent, apart from 
seasonal factors. With employment in manufacturing 
and mining slightly lower, the gains have taken 
place in construction and the service industries. 

The number of persons with jobs in the first six 
months of this year was nearly 3 per cent higher 
than in the corresponding period of 1956 and those 
with jobs in the non-farm sector 4 per cent higher. 
However, the rise in employment did not keep pace 
with the unusually rapid growth of the labour force 
and the number without jobs and seeking work as a 
percentage of the labour force averaged 4.7 as 
compared with 4.3 in the same period of 1956. 

Prices 

While the pressure on prices at the wholesale 
level appears to have eased since early in the year, 
final product prices continued to move upward in the 
second quarter. It is estimated that the over-all level 
of prices at the final product stage rose by somewhat 
less than 1 per cent in the second quarter. Varying 
increases were noted in each of the major expendi- 
ture components. However, at the wholesale level, 
prices declined fractionally in the second quarter, 
and in June were somewhat lower than the peak 
reached in January of this year. It should be noted 
that movements in the components of the wholesale 
price index over the past year have been conflicting, 
with declines occurring in non-ferrous metal products, 
vegetable products, and wood and wood products; 
some components of the index have levelled off 
while others have continued to move upward. Com- 
pared with the second quarter of 1956, the over-all 
wholesale price index shows a gain of 1 per cent in 
contrast to the rise of 3 per cent which occurred in 
the previous 12-month period. The rise in the con- 
sumer price index during the past six months is 
mainly attributable to the services segment, with 
the goods content of the index showing relatively 
small gains. 



COMPONENTS OF GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT 



Wages, Salaries and Supplementary Labour Income 

Labour income in the second quarter is estimated 
to be $15,300 million at a seasonally adjusted annual 
rate, which represents an increase of 1 Vi per cent 
from the preceding quarter. This rise is the result 
of an increase in employment of about 1 per cent and 
higher average earnings. 



Labour income in the construction industry 
continued to show relatively large gains. Significant 
increases also occurred in public utilities, transpor- 
tation, communication and storage, finance, insurance 
and real estate, and forestry. With employment in 
manufacturing down 1 per cent, seasonally adjusted, 
labour income in this industry was slightly below the 
level of the first quarter. 



When the first half of 1957 is compared with the 
same period of 1956, the advance in labour income 
is 10 per cent and the industries showing relatively 
large gains are finance and services, and public 
utilities, transportation, communications and storage. 
The advance of 10 per cent in labour income in this 
comparison reflects a 4 per cent increase in the 
number of employed paid workers and higher average 
earnings. It may be noted that hours worked per week 
in manufacturing were lower in the half-year compari- 
son, by about 1 per cent. 



Investment Income 

Investment income in the second quarter of 1957 
was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $4,664 
million, a decline of 3 per cent from the level of the 
first quarter. 

Corporate profits before deduction of dividends 
paid abroad were slightly lower, seasonally adjusted, 
than in the first quarter. The small change in the 
aggregate conceals divergent experience in the 
various industrial groups. About one-half of the 
component industries registered lower profits, the 
largest declines being in iron and steel, non-ferrous 
metals and textiles. Somewhat higher profits were 
recorded in mining, chemicals, non-metallic minerals, 
foods and beverages and in some of the service- 
producing industries. With the continued sharp ad- 
vance in dividends paid abroad, corporate profits 
after deduction of dividends paid abroad were 
estimated to be down 4 per cent. 

Seasonally adjusted, investment income of 
individuals was up 2 per cent, reflecting higher 
receipts in the form of interest and rents, partially 
offset by lower dividends. On the other hand, govern- 
ment investment income was substantially reduced. 

In the six months' comparison, investment income 
in 1957 was slightly below the level of 1956. Corpo- 
rate profits before dividends paid abroad were nearly 
5 per cent lower and corporate profits entering 



National Income were down about 8 per cent. Other 
elements of investment income rose almost enough 
to offset the decline in corporate profits. 

Net Income of Unincorporated Business 

Net income originating in unincorporated business 
was lower in the second quarter than in the first, by 
about 2 per cent. Farm income seasonally adjusted, 
declined as a result of a somewhat lower level of 
livestock production. In the non-farm sector, net 
income showed a drop of about 1 per cent, reflecting 
chiefly a decline in the retail trade group. 

It maybe noted that net farm income in the second 
quarter shows a drop of about 22 per cent from the 
same period one year ago. This decline reflects the 
fact that grain production for the full year 1957 is 
estimated to $350 million below 1956. In the season- 
ally adjusted estimates, crop production is divided 
evenly among the four quarters of the year. 

Indirect Taxes less Subsidies 

Seasonally adjusted at annual rates, indirect 
taxes less subsidies amounted to $3,764 million, 3 
per cent less than in the first quarter. The decline 
was attributable to a drop in excise taxes (8 per 
cent) and customs import duties (7 per cent) at the 
Federal level. 

However, when the second quarter of 1957 is 
compared with the same period of 1956, Federal 
indirect taxes were unchanged. Customs import 
duties, reflecting the decline in imports, were sub- 
stantially lower but this decline was offset by higher 
receipts from excise and other indirect taxes. Pro- 
vincial indirect taxes rose, mainly as the result of 
higher yields from the gasoline and retail sales 
taxes. Real and personal property taxes account for 
the major part of the increase in municipal revenues. 

In the six-months' comparison, indirect taxes less 
subsidies showed an increase of 8 per cent. 



COMPONENTS OF CROSS NATIONAL EXPENDITURE 



Government Expenditure on Goods and Services 

Government expenditure on goods and services, 
seasonally adjusted, in the second quarter was 
$5,448 million, 5 per cent higher than in the first 
quarter. The gains were concentrated at the pro- 
vincial and municipal level. It may be noted that 
the estimate is on a cash basis and therefore does 
not take into account the increase in wages and 



salaries at the Federal level which became effective, 
but was not paid, in the second quarter. 

When the first half of 1957 is compared with the 
first half of 1956, government expenditure on goods 
and services shows an increase of 5 per cent. De- 
fence outlays have shown little change in the half 
year, but other outlays have risen at all three levels 
of government. 



IV 



Gross Domestic Investment (excluding change in 
inventories) 

Gross domestic investment (excluding change in 
inventories) in the second quarter was $7,072 million, 
at seasonally adjusted annual rates, 2 per cent above 
the level of the first quarter. The composition of 
investment changed somewhat as the emphasis 
shifted toward construction and away from machinery 
and equipment. The two construction components in 
the second quarter, seasonally adjusted, were $4,400 
million compared with $4,228 million in the first 
quarter, while outlays for machinery and equipment, 
also seasonally adjusted, were $2,672 million, $44 
million less than in the first quarter. The rise in 
construction outlays is the result of an 8 per cent 
increase in non-residential construction, partially 
offset by a 4 per cent decline in expenditures for 
housing. There was a distinct recovery in housing 
starts in the second quarter but completions con- 
tinued to be below the level of the preceding quarter. 
The slight falling off in expenditures for machinery 
and equipment in the second quarter follows a two- 
year period of steadily advancing outlays. 

The rise in the price of investment goods between 
the first and second quarters appears to have been 



less than one per cent, so that the volume of invest- 
ment was to that extent lower than the value figures 
indicate. The major part of the gains reflected wage 
rates rather than prices of materials. 

In the first six months of this year gross domestic 
investment was at an annual rate of $7,008 million, 
compared with $6,310 million in the same period of 
1956. 

Investment in Business Inventories 

At a seasonally adjusted annual rate, investment 
in business inventories in the second quarter amounted 
to $312 million, in contrast to $568 million in the 
first quarter. The reduction in the rate of investment 
reflects the decided falling off in the rate of accumu- 
lation in trade following a substantial build-up of 
stocks in the first quarter. Manufacturers' stocks 
continued to increase but at a lower rate than in the 
first quarter. Since prices were somewhat higher the 
increase in the volume of stocks was lower than the 
value figures indicate. 

Within manufacturing, after allowing for normal 
seasonal variation, stocks continued to accumulate 
in the clothing, pulp and paper, non-ferrous metals 
and non-metallic minerals groups but at lower rates

than those of the first quarter. Some manufacturing 
industries, in particular, food and beverages, tobacco, 
rubber products, and electrical apparatus and sup- 
plies, shifted from accumulation to liquidation be- 
tween the two quarters. Textiles and transportation 
equipment appear to be an exception to the general 
trend in manufacturing. Having shown some liqui- 
dation in the first quarter, they added to stocks in 
the second. 

Declines in investment in inventories, seasonally 
adjusted, were widely dispersed among the various 
trade groups. At the wholesale level, investment in 
stocks was generally lower in the durable groups 
(household equipment, farm, industrial and com- 
mercial machinery, and building materials) . The same 
development occurred in clothing at both the whole- 
sale and retail level. Mixed trends were evident in 
food items, with generally lower stocks at wholesale 
partly offset by further accumulation at retail. 

Stocks of new passenger cars were somewhat 
higher at retail, but the principal accumulation of 
automobiles in the second quarter appeared to have 
taken place at the manufacturing level, accounting 
in large part for the development noted above in the 
transportation equipment group. 



The recent lower level of investment in inven- 
tories followed the general downward trend in 
evidence since the first quarter of 1956 when ac- 
cumulation was at its peak of more than $900 million 
at seasonally adjusted annual rates. At that time 
final demand was expanding very rapidly. The 
tendency toward smaller additions to stocks in the 
second quarter was accompanied by a general in- 
crease in the ratio of stocks to sales from the 
comparatively low levels of 1955 and early 1956, 
although stocks-sales ratios were not back to their 
mid- 1954 levels. 

Exports and Imports of 6000*5 and Services 

At a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $6,224 
million in the second quarter, exports of goods and 
services were nearly 3 per cent below the level of 
the first quarter. The bulk of the decline is attri- 
butable to goods rather than services. The most 
important factor in the movement of exports was the 
sharp drop in sales of wheat, which was partially 
offset by an increase in exports of some other 
products. Receipts from invisibles were moderately 
lower as a result of a reduction in exports of gold 
not fully offset by larger receipts of interest and 
dividends and on tourist account.

VI 



Imports of goods and services in the second 
quarter were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate 
of $7,840 million, about 1 per cent lower than in the 
first quarter. This decline follows a steady succes- 
sion of increases since the second quarter of 1954. 
The reductions were concentrated in merchandise 
Items whole payments for services were higher, 
largely as a result of a larger outflow of interest 
and dividends. The slackening rate of investment in 
machinery and equipment was reflected in a moderate 
falling-off in imports of iron and its products. 

The increase in prices in the external sector 
between the first and second quarter was insignifi- 
cant so that the declines in the volume of exports 
and imports of goods and services roughly correspond 
to the changes in value. 

With exports of goods and services in the second 
quarter falling more than imports, the deficit on 
current international account, seasonally adjusted, 
rose from $1,520 million to $1,616 million. 

In a comparison of the first six months of 1957 
with the first six months of the previous year, the 
value of exports of goods and services is virtually 
unchanged while the value of imports is higher by 
4 per cent. 

Personal Income, Expenditure and Saving 

With conflicting movements in the various com- 
ponents, personal income in the second quarter of 
1957 was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 
$22,808 million, slightly more than 1 per cent higher 
than in the first quarter. Personal taxes moved in 
line with income, so that the rise in disposable 
income paralleled that of personal income. With 
consumer prices higher by 1 per cent, the gain in 
real income fell short of the rise in money income. 

Consumer expenditure in the second quarter, 
$19,484 million, receded slightly from the level of 



the first quarter, reflecting an appreciable decline 
in purchases of durables accompanied by a smaller 
than usual expansion in purchases of non-durables 
and services. Sales of new passenger cars, which 
had been unusually high in the first quarter, were 
down about 25 per cent on a seasonally adjusted 
basis. There was a distinct recovery in purchases 
of used cars but net expenditure on cars (sales less 
trade-in allowances) was down 15 per cent. There 
were also some relatively small declines in purchases 
of other durables. 

Changes in purchases of non-durables showed no 
clear pattern. Of the main categories, purchases of 
food were about the same while purchases of clothing 
were lower. The small increase in expenditures on 
services is accounted for by an increase in rents, 
paid and imputed, partially offset by losses in some 
other service categories. 

The major part of the rise in prices in the con- 
sumer sector is in the service items, with goods 
showing very little change. The continuing upward 
trend of prices of services accounts for the increased 
expenditure. 

In the first six months of the year consumer 
expenaiture was higher by 6 per cent than in the 
same period of last year. In this comparison, as in 
the quarterly comparison for this year, the major 
change in the pattern of spending is in purchases 
of durables, whereas purchases of non-durables and 
services were higher by 7 per cent and 8 per cent 
respectively; expenditures on durables remained at 
the same level. 

With disposable income higher by about 1 per 
cent in the second quarter, and personal expenditure 
showing little change in total, the rate of personal 
saving was appreciably higher than in the first 
quarter, rising from $1.1 billion to $1.4 billion. As a 
percentage of disposable income, personal saving 
was 5.3 per cent in the first quarter and 6.8 per cent 
in the second quarter.
